John and Max 200 mile kayak challenge- They did it!

John Oakley completed his 8 day kayak with his dog Max to raise money for the RSPCA Warrington, Halton and St Helens branch. You can still donate, please help them reach their target. 

In 2016, John and Max kayaked 100 miles and raised over £3000. They witnessed the difference the money raised made to the animals at the RSPCA Warrington, Halton and St Helens branch and they decided to quite literally, push the boat out for one last big effort.

John made the journey from Oxford to Warrington – nearly 200 miles – with Max who he adopted from our branch. Max has even gained the nickname ‘Pirate Max’ following his love for spending time with John floating on the canals.

The journey worked out at 25 miles per day which gave John the unenviable task of paddling a marathon per day.

John and Max had to face various storms that included very high winds and torrential rain and a run of bad luck, losing his glasses and one of his phones in the canal. It really was a huge effort to finish the challenge, many of us would have given up.

They started on Sunday 16th September in Oxford and finished on Sunday 23rd September at the London Bridge Inn in Appleton, Warrington.

Max was abandoned with two other dogs. He spent over a year in kennels and unfortunately, missed out on two homes through no fault of his own. That was when John and Kei decided they need to add a gorgeous Staffie to their household.

To sponsor John and Max anyone can visit his justgiving page-

John and Max are raising money directly to help the RSPCA Warrington, Halton and St Helens branch. The branch is a cruelty case boarding centre. This means that the animals in their care have been removed by inspectors due to neglect or abuse.

We Won!

Thank you so much for voting for us to become the local charity of the year for Sainsbury’s Chapelford.

We are a local branch of the RSPCA which means we are a separately registered charity form the RSPCA National Society and we need to raise our own funds.

We have a special role caring for cats and dogs that have experienced abuse, neglect and cruelty. We care for and rehabilitate the animals while the prosecutions against their owners move through courts.

This means we care for some very damaged animals, both emotionally and physically, and have the added challenge of meeting their welfare needs in a kennel and cattery environment for prolonged periods of time.

Once animals are either signed over or we win their cases in court, they are usually transferred to other branches for this stage of the process. So, we can make room for another cat or dog.

We need funds to help us provide any necessary veterinary care, and the equipment and resources for the animal’s rehabilitation.

For example, Poppy was brought to our branch by RSPCA inspectors. She was removed due to an untreated leg injury, but had also previously suffered burns to a large area of her back, thought to have been caused by bleach. Her skin was still tender and her fur will not regrow completely, and she needed care to stop her back becoming sore but she always kept her gentle and fun personality. Following the resolution of her case, she was transferred to the RSPCA Macclesfield branch to find her home. It did not take long for a family to fall in love and adopt her. We receive updates from them and she’s living very happily now.

The opportunity to be the local charity of the year for Sainsbury’s Chapelford provides a huge boost to our fundraising. It will be crucial in helping us rehabilitate the animals in our care and give more animals, like Poppy, a second chance.

Thank you for your support.
